    Using Model 3 for towing before Tesla-approved towing components and accessories are available may void the warranty.

    Roof Racks

    Model 3 supports the use of Tesla-approved roof racks using a Tesla mounting accessory. To install roof racks, you must use this accessory and you must use only roof rack systems that have been approved by Tesla (see Parts and Accessories). Failure to do so can cause significant damage.
